Dr Clarke said he was first contacted three years ago by ‘Frank’ who claimed to be a SAS insider. He had seen Dr Clarke talking about Rendlesham on a TV documentary and felt ‘it was about time that the truth was revealed about the incident’.
Dr Clarke, of the Centre for Contemporary Legend at Sheffield Hallam University, said: ‘I investigated his incredible story by talking to trusted and open sources in the British military, including some high profile former SAS troopers. ‘What happened in the forest, according to Frank, would be bread and butter for special operation soldiers trained to deceive and misinform whilst remaining invisible.’
This is a blatant, tabloid-level misreporting of the story. Dr David Clarke himself on his blog states that he checked it with a former SAS man, Robin Horsfall, who says (a) the letter doesn't read like it was written by an SAS member, (b) the SAS would not have played a prank like this on the US forces as the latter were armed, and there were strict rules about the use of pyrotechnics etc. (c) if it had occurred he would have heard about it from SAS members at the time. Clarke also says the US base commander at the time Col Ted Conrad says (a) it's unthinkable that UK forces would conduct a prank on a top importance nuclear base with armed personnel, (b) similarly unthinkable that US forces would capture & beat up British people, particularly those claiming to be SAS members, on UK soil, (c) they would not have referred to British people as 'aliens'.
Fake News you say...!
Read the DM article he's done three years of research about Rendlesham and with you're not going to know the sources or get any official meaningful response .
